WIDR Sliders & Brew
WIDR Sliders bottle

You know what we love at WIDR? We love it when people who are passionate about something are really good at it and get to spend their lives doing it. We also love beer. What happens when you put those things together in Michigan? Some of the best damn craft beer the world has ever seen! And it's coming to Kalamazoo.

WIDR is pleased to announce that eight of Michigan's finest brewers will be on-hand for (what we hope will be) the first annual WIDR Sliders & Brew craft beer tasting event at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Details, you say? Read on.

If you're a craft beer fan or you just like Michigan products, April 13th is not a night to stay home. Brewers/staff from Arcadia, Arbor Brewing Company, Dark Horse, Founders, New Holland, Old Hat, Paw Paw Brewing Company, and Short's are coming to town and bringing a river of their finest pilsners, ales, stouts, and porters, plus whatever other surprises they have up their sleeves. From 6-9pm, anyone 21 and up will be able to explore a world of beer they may not have even realized existed.

In fact, we've been informed that some of the beers being brought for WIDR have never even been made available outside of Winter Beer Fest and out of state tasting events, so there will be serious potential for bragging to your beer loving buddies if they miss this. We'll make announcements about who's bringing what here and on our Twitter feed as the 13th gets closer.

For a mere $10 at the door, you'll get eight samples, a plate of sliders, and the chance to talk beer with your friends and some of the best brewers in the business. When you want to try more, additional five-sample tickets are only $5. Not only are you getting killer beer and burgers, you're also supporting WIDR and independent thinking Michigan.

If you find a new favorite, beers from all the event's brewers are available at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange, so you won't have to call it an early evening.

Since you're a WIDR fan, we know you'll want to share this bitchin' news with the world, so here are copies of our fliers and handbills, so you can print them for your cohorts or business. You can also let us know you're coming and help tell even more people at our Facebook event page.

The fliers were done by the awesome folks at Apt2Labs, who really get the WIDR vibe.

"Old Sledge is a group of young musicians from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Blowing the dust off old tunes and songs from the golden era of early country, hillbilly and blues music, Old Sledge represents the best and brightest of the new generation of traditional musicians from the south. Far from being re-enactors of old time music they bring creative arrangements and dynamic performances while still holding true to the mountain aesthetic in which they are rooted."

Stolen bike
Hey all.

My bike got stolen from my backyard. It was chained to the fence, so obviously it wasn't just an opportunistic walk off deal. If anyone sees it or hears anything about a bike matching the description, please let me know: I'm beyond crushed. I've had this bike since 7th grade and it was perfect for me.

Black Schwinn cruiser, 7 speed, wide gel seat, luggage rack on rear wheels, girls frame, odometer sensor on front fork, tool bag under the seat, broken kick stand, doggie gnawed right handle, 26 in wheels w/black fenders.

Please feel free to pass this along to any cycling enthusiasts or other folks who might be of help. I did file a report and I'm about to start calling pawn shops, but the more people with an eye out the better.

Current Mood: crushed

awesome writer/comic guy/generally awesome person to come to Kzoo, date TBA
So I'm not sure if any of you are aware of this, but Joey Comeau of A Softer World is putting together a new book tour and was looking for places to host events for him, and I offered up my house right here in the student ghetto of our dear Kalamazoo and he said he'd be here!

Now, I'm not sure of what date exactly he's planning on coming just yet, but I just wanted to know how many people from the area might be interested in coming so I could try to plan accordingly. It'll be an awesome night of book readings, general craziness, and maybe some tasty snacks.

Who's in?

Applied Intellect Has Moved
Applied Intellect computer repair has moved to The Geek Group Heavy Industries building at 2309 N. Burdick St. in Kalamazoo. We are still renovating the office space, but we are open for business. Applied Intellect is a local computer repair shop that has served the Kalamazoo area since 2003. We rely on the support of local customers and seek to provide superior service and lower prices than our larger competitors.

Applied Intellect currently has a handful of refurbished computers ranging from our basic $100, Ubuntu-Linux-based machines to more advanced PCs running Microsoft Windows XP. The $100 computers are perfect for web browsing over high speed Internet, playing music or movies and running word processing suites. From the dorm room to the home office, the computers will allow you to perform all the rudimentary tasks of computing without having to pay for the latest, greatest hardware or the cost of a Windows license. Our Windows-based machines are a bit more expensive due to the cost of licensing and the hardware is a little more advanced. They are great for basic computer gaming, video or audio editing or for those people accustomed to the look and layout of Windows. Our stock is constantly fluctuating, so contact us for availability. Our current stock is listed below the cut.

Money spent at Applied Intellect also helps to support The Geek Group, a national non-profit organization dedicated to science and technology education. The Geek Group is currently building the world’s largest Newton’s cradle, refurbishing computers for needy families, and renovating the audio\video production facilities used to create educational videos. By choosing Applied Intellect, you can rest assure that what little money you do spend will be kept in the local community and help The Geek Group fund its educational projects.
